Well, I wanted to know a bit more about the earlier years and decided to do a bit of searching on the Orko Silver website and the net. The chart above is the result of a little late night browsing. I happened to come across a similar chart on the Orko Silver website cause they had something similar in one of their presentations. I have also added some annotations in the chart from wiki invest.
The following paragraphs are taken from the Orko Silver Corp. website and correspond with the dates on the chart above.

Favourable results from drilling and interpretation of distinct mineral-shoots within the Abundancia and La Gloria veins gave reason for Orko to make a first resource estimate for the property. Using a cut-off grade of 150 g/t silver-equivalent, Inferred Resource Estimate I totaled 2.72 million tonnes grading 227.2 g/t Ag and 0.462 g/t Au for a silver-equivalent grade of 255.0 g/t. Resource Estimate I was released on 19 January 2006 (Gunning and Whiting, 2006).

This estimate was up to hole BP06-38 for a total of 16,334 metres in La Preciosa Ridge area, including Abundancia, La Gloria and Abundancia Zona Sur veins. Using a cut-off grade of 100 g/t silver-equivalent, Inferred Resource Estimate II totalled 4.05 million tonnes grading 207.4 g/t Ag and 0.384 g/t Au for a silver-equivalent grade of 230.4 g/t. Alternatively, at a 150 g/t cut-off, Inferred Resource Estimate II totalled 3.42 million tonnes grading 235.0 g/t Ag and 0.435 g/t Au for a silver-equivalent grade of 261.1 g/t.

So, there you go, this ought to help to get a more complete picture about Orko Silver’s path to becoming a producing silver miner and what has already been done to get there.
